The preppy style is inspired by the famous American school uniforms and collages of the 1950s. British check and gilet, bon ton headbands and collars, pleated stockings and miniskirts, tailored jackets and loafers... The preppy style has the strength to mix casual and chic in the same look.
Its origin can already be found in its own terminology: preppy derives from preparatory school, precisely in reference to the uniforms of American students and the related lifestyle.
Informal garments but at the same time so neat and impeccable that over time they have become a source of inspiration for fashions, brands and new cults. From our shop, we have selected some must-haves to mix together to create a contemporary, exclusive and… preppy look!
Jacket Galles - De Santis by Martin Alvarez.
Among the typical garments of the preppy style, jackets and coats certainly occupy a special place. To create a preppy look with a contemporary mood, you can dare by choosing refined garments such as the double-breasted jacket with macramé inlays, cut at the waist with pleats, checked: a mix and match of elegance, tailoring and femininity.
Anne Blouse - Simone Tessadori.
Simone Tessadori interprets a great cult, typical of the preppy style, with a chic and contemporary style. The knitted gilet of the young emerging brand is a real cuddle of elegance: perfect to wear every day, to combine with a layered look, comfortable and cool at the same time, it is an unmissable must have!
Jo With Ruches - Veraroad.
The preppy style is characterized by the mix and match of elegance and irony: the made in Florence shirt by Veraroad combines the tradition of a great evergreen with the color of pastel tones and the romanticism of a print with a vintage mood, with small flowers. A versatile, sophisticated garment, a real touch of class!
Grace Trousers - Simone Tessadori.
What do you think of Simone Tessadori's iconic high-waisted cigarette pants? To the classic pleated skirt, we preferred to compose our preppy-style look by choosing the elegance and tailoring of these trousers, so chic and with attention to detail, from the bow to the play of colors.
Francesca Mud - Virginia Severini.
A key accessory of the preppy style is definitely the bag: this is chosen with care, preferring typical models of the past and a classic style. Geometric shapes that wink at vintage but also the timeless bucket bag, to be worn elegantly on the shoulder or crossed as a cross-body bag on jackets and coats. Today we suggest a really precious one, entirely handmade in Umbria by the Virginia Severini brand: in very soft leather with brass and marble details.
Leone Iris Flat Cerulean Green - Susana Madrid.
Which shoes to choose for your preppy style? Definitely a nice pair of moccasins: instead of the classic college model, you can opt for a new reinterpretation, like that of Susana Madrid. With a slightly square toe, metal ring and 3D lion head in relief, available in multiple colors: a shoe that will certainly not go unnoticed!
Green Nylon Hairband - Ambra Castello.
To create a perfect preppy style look, you can't not wear a headband. A bon ton, vintage, graceful touch that will immediately illuminate your face: choose it bold, maxi and colorful like the one we have selected for you from our special collection of headbands. Made in Italy, in hand-woven nylon, green and signed by the emerging brand Ambra Castello (available in many colors).
